Mirage 29 vs. 30

I'm looking for a reasonably priced 30 footer for comfortable cruising and some casual racing on Lake Ontario. Have my eye on the Mirage 30 and 29 from around 1986/87. The difference between these boats seem slight- just wondering if anyone can shed more light on these designs, their general advantages/disadvantages compared to similar boats and the differences between them?

Question Mirage 29 or 30 or Mirage Kirby

The specs say 7000 lb and 8000lb displacement, waterline length and designers are the differences.

C&C built 5 versions of 27' similar layout but different in dimensions/specs and therefore performance/speed and space. I ended up with a Mark 2. The Mark 5 is almost 28' long, much faster, has a wheel and diesel and a built in garbage can in the galley versus my $10,000 less expensive version! Oh, and mine was overbuilt with 1970's fiberglass layup techniques that are far less prone to deck problems the Mark 4's/5's have.

I suspect performance/speed,and space are the main differences. If you sail on the Great Lakes there is a $30 annual license for Canadians to buy on 30'+ footers visiting US shores versus 29' - 11.4". So, who knows what the owners said when registering their boats upon resale????? Oddly the following sites say the 29 has a longer waterline length than the 30 so the 29' Mirage would be faster (all else being equal).

Go to

Sailboatdata dot com - Used Sailboat Market in Canada for a simple spec on the 29 and 30 footer.


There are the 29' Phillippe Harle design and the 30' a Robert Perry design there.

When you fiqure out the finer differences email me. I like the boat, (sister ships are in good shape at our club), they are fast. The only issue is delamination around the main hatchway in a 27' I almost bought. (jedlls@sympatico.ca) john

Try the want ads on boats for sale and ask the owners or each creed to tell the differences.....
